I want to talk about green gold. It’s a hard-to-find type of gold that when occurring in nature, it is an alloy known as electrum. Manhattan Gold & Silver has a blog post about it and they said that the green tint in this form of gold is subtle. Only a trained eye would be able to quickly spot it. The blog also dove into the history of green gold. …
 
Today on Getting Stoned, I want to talk about an interesting use for diamonds--as time capsules. I saw a post on LinkedIn about diamonds being used as a time capsule and wanted to learn more.

Wikipedia says that it is probably the oldest known meteorite and is the first …

Upon receiving it, it had the same texture as jet--clearly a stone but it felt very light, almost wooden. After digging around on Google, I learned that this neat little mineral is a mix of magnesi…
 
Today I want to talk about chrome diopside. Diopside comes in many colors but the most well-known is the green variety.

Chrome diopside comes from a region in Eastern Siber…
